The MANLY birthday party

I discovered something recently… there are very FEW male birthday party ideas out there.  Apparently our male counterparts aren’t as interested in theme parties or “frou-frou”.  Who knew?  (snicker, snicker)

So.. what I did find?  I’m sharing today!

Like this adorable… er, totally masculine “bbq cake”, from Scissors and Spatulas.  What a FUN idea for an outdoor weekend birthday party.   And the great thing is that this cake is surprisingly easy to make.  TRULY!  Those hamburgers are actually rice cakes sprayed with red food coloring.  Read the post to learn how to make one yourself for your manly man!

I was able to find a great example of a dessert table for the man in your life, from Kara’s Party Ideas.  Can’t go wrong with browns and oranges!

This gallery from Hostess with the Mostess is for a 2 year old fishing birthday party, but I think it could totally be re-worked for the fisherman in your life.  She has some great ideas that are sure to spur your own.  For Diva Entertains – we thought “Fish Cupcakes” would be fun and found these wonderful, colorful, edible fish decorations to put on top of homemade (or store bought) cupcakes:

The next two are cake inspiration, not how-tos.  But if you really like the look, print off a picture and take it to a bakery to see if they can create.

I found several “handyman” type cakes…which could be a good theme, if your guy is a handy fellow.  Love this tool belt cake from the Sugar Syndicate.  Take time to look through their portfolio of cakes – so many great ideas!

And how about combining everything a guy loves into a theme or cake?  Check out this topsy turvy cake from the Pink Cake BoxEven if Golf, Nascar and Palm Trees aren’t your guy’s favs – create one that incorporates those that are!  I love a topsy turvy cake and they seem to be the rage at most bakeries these days:
